Derek Lee update

Most of you have probably already seen these, as I should've posted them yesterday, but I figured I might as well post them now anyway. Both are from Baggot's blog.

Lee practices, but UW debut remains on hold

Five good minutes with Derek Lee

The NCAA says Lee took a required course too late. Lee has appealed, and now that the appeal is official, Lee can practice with the team. I might've missed it, but I didn't see any expected timeframe for a decision by the NCAA, although Eaves did say that the UW would appeal further if Lee's appeal is rejected.

I feel bad for Lee, as it sounds like he tried to do everything right. I hope this gets straightened out soon.
